MexicanAmerican -- since when is being called a "diva" -- a good thing? It is an insult.. So why are you using it on her?


Do you dislike the woman and you're using passive aggressive words to insinuate things.. if so, just SAY what you have to say..don't act all nice about her..

A "diva" in the way that Jenni Rivera explained it ,is a woman that worked hard to get what she had. Much respect to Jenni Rivera for her entrepreneurship , her kind heart of helping anyone who ever asked her for help, a survivor of domestic abuse, and for being a wonderful mother and grandmother. Fan of hers or not , you should still respect those who have passed. Prayers to her family and the families of the other crash victims.

She called herself a diva, she didn't mean it in a bad way either. She was such a beautiful soul inside and out. Que viva la diva de la banda <3

The only thing I can deduce from the volume of poor grammatical comments on this story is, there must be a ton of Mexican hoodrats who read TMZ while they wait at home to cash those welfare/government aid checks. Why else would TMZ have a story on someone the average American would know nothing about.

I just listened to 10 seconds of one of her songs (my ears couldn’t handle more), her music is brutal and I feel slightly dumber after hearing it. I did see her sex tape, and I can confirm that she is better at BJs than singing….

Regardless if anyone likes her or not she was a wonderful person who had many life struggles and its truly tragic to see her pass, its also a tragedy that a piece of s*** like u exist.

I don't know why we all Jenni Fans are paying attention to ignorant idiots who simply believe what they read on the Internet or simply sexually frustrated that they need to watch her sex tape, big deal it's a ****ing sex tape we all have sex we all make mistakes you learn from them! Haters talk all you want say what you want to say because I guarantee you on anything in this screwed up world that jenni Rivera the Diva doesn't give two ****s what you all have to say! She did tweet for a reason "when I die I want to be buried upside down so HATERS CAN KISS MY ASS!
